It is very important that fresh fruits and vegetables become one of your mainstays in your diet says market vendor, Manjila Prasad.

Mrs Prasad sells a variety of vegetables and fruits in her stall at the Nadi Municipal Market.

This has been her daily routine for the past 33 years.

While sharing her story at the market, Mrs Prasad said it was the only source of income for her family, and that it helped in her children’s education.

She has a passion for her job as a vendor in the market.

“I love selling because it helped my family. I am able to send my four kids to school through this and I enjoy meeting new customers in the market,” she said.

Mrs Prasad said it was also important for vendors to ensure that they sold fresh vegetables and fruits for the satisfactory of their customers.

She has urged all vendors to always sell the best that is worth the money that customers pay for.

“Keeping fruit and vegetables fresh for as long as possible is a challenge, particularly in warmer months so it is vital to ensure that your customers are provided with the best,” she added.

Meanwhile, the Wailoloa woman in Nadi has been able to refurbish her house from the money she gets from selling.
